Re: Hales & Stokes: Sowing their wild oats!

"The Sun has exclusively said that 2 gay guys have said Stokes was defending them after homophobic remarks & threats to their well being. Where have they been all this time."

Defending them, by walking towards a guy and laying into him with three or four punches, as is clearly seen on the video??

Wonder why it has took over a month for the two blokes to come forward and say Stokes was defending their honour.
Also shouldn't they keep their mouths shut altogether if there is an ongoing police investigation?

The 'defending gays' angle was reported at the time of the incident. Whether it can be used by Stokes in his defence would depend on the willingness of the two (alleged) victims to give evidence, and witnesses too, which is why these things all take so long, I suppose.

Our 'adversarial' system of justice has its flaws, from all angles. But Stokes seems to have been found guilty by the ECB kangaroo court before he has even been charged.

Or has he been charged? And if he isn't, or if he's found not guilty, will he have a case against the ECB?

Why would he have a case against the ECB?

He is a centrally contracted player, so does he get his salary whether he plays or not?.

I presume an element of that salary is based on games played, though perhaps it's not. New Balance have certainly withdrawn their bat sponsorship because of his non-selection and, therefore, non-exposure to TV cameras.
